and playing loud music and women without had covers in the house. nato issues a press release and makes statements anonymously in the media where they said the u.s. forces had stumbled upon the aftermath of the taliban honor killing and implied the family -- that the women were killed by their own murderer's family members. so in the course of the film, we investigate the night raid and learned the individuals who did that raid were members of the joint special operations command and we know that because the then head of the joint special operations command showed up in this village with scores of afghan soldiers and u.s. forces. we showed this in the film, there is a scene where they offload a sheep and offer to sacrifice the sheep to ask for forgiveness, and afghan cultural tradition. it was meant to be a gesture of reconciliation. the offload the sheep and offering to sacrifice them in every place where the raid had taken place, the admiral goes into the home and says his men were responsible for killing women and the police commander and he asks for forgiveness from the head of the
